    I'm so sorry to have lost my Aunt Shirley! She has always been a special person to me, both when I was a child and later when I had children of my own. She was so sweet to Noa, my daughter, who at the age of 11 or 12, couldn't speak English when we visited the States. Shirley found a common language of smiles, drawings and laughter to make Noa feel at home.
    When Noa heard of Shirley's death she was really upset to hear about it and expressed her fondness for her.
    Shirley, we miss you!

    The Earth lost what Heaven has gained. You will be missed by everyone who knew you and those who didn’t have a chance to meet you.
